Communications and Informatics Minister Johnny Gerard Plate highlighted Indonesia’s four-pronged approach to accelerate digital transformation to establish an ASEAN digital community at the ASEAN Leaders’ Statement on Advancing Digital Transformation in ASEAN.

The first strategy encompasses implementing a 2021-2024 Indonesia Digital Roadmap as a strategic guidance to realizing national digital transformation.

“Equal access to quality telecommunications services is the precondition for realizing digital transformation,” the minister said in a press release here on Wednesday.

Hence, the government continues to strive to build reliable and even connectivity to reduce the digital divide and increase the ratio of Internet connectivity among the country’s regions.

Indonesia also encourages the establishment of a regulation concerning cross-border data flow to ensure the protection of personal data.
